What SFF things are you running Xibo on these days?
The last time round we bought some industrial cases and put atom boards in them. This worked well (apart from a couple of driver issues initially). It looks like we may be expanding our fleet, so I'm after some ideas.
My thoughts so far:
1) Buy a second-hand but working stupidly-small-form-factor something-or-other because it'll already have a windows license and be dirt cheap.
2) Buy something like a low-end nuc and (if the Xibo Linux client is still terrible) purchase a Windows license for it.
3) Wrestle yet again with trying to make it work reliably on a RaspberryPi or similar board.

After a lot of tinkering and looking on forums I have risevision working perfectly on some raspberry pi's around the school, not sure about Xibo though!

AMD Kabini powered boards look to be perfect for this, and will be what I move to. Enough CPU and graphics power for the job, but small, cheap and efficient. Should swap into your existing cases.

Using a nuc on one display, one with two HDMI (celeron) using windows 8 so I can feed two screens with it, others are old acer revos. I'd like to try the android client on something like a cubox-i someday (The CuBox i From SolidRun | The Little Computer that can) only problem is the android client is 15 quid

We are running new screens using Android devices - JUSTOP K10A and the Android client. Cheap enough, low power and does the job.
